Planned rail strike - 26 November

The planned rail strike on 26 November may affect your travel plans.

During the rail strike we expect demand for coach travel to significantly increase, we therefore strongly recommend that you book your journey in advance to guarantee a seat.

Our network will be a lot busier than usual so please allow plenty of time to arrive at your departure location prior to travel. If you are connecting to another service, you may need to leave more time between travel connections. There will be more traffic on the roads during the train strikes so we kindly ask for your understanding and patience during this time, especially when talking to our drivers and customer service teams. Please check your journey information before you travel.

Please ensure that you have packed everything you need for a comfortable journey - water for your trip, a cold snack, wearing comfortable clothes and keeping any medication you require on your person.

To stay up to date with our services please use Coach Tracker for live journey updates.


Please note: as a result of increased customer contacts our customer service centre is very busy currently. We apologise for any inconvenience.
